    It was 65 here in Erie. When that happens in December here, one is not indoors on the computer! A few bees flying yesterday, but the wind is howling today, so that was probably it for the nice weather.

    Search the site for a Fondant recipe. But if I was you I'd switch to Fondant while you can. It's actually easy to make and gets easier with experience.

    Thanks......I went to a bee club meeting last night and saw Greg Rogers give a lecture on Nucs and splits, some really interesting techniques. A bit overwhelming for a noobie like me.......but cool

    From the amount of posts, it appears you've officially got the beekeeping bug. There's no cure, you might as well enjoy it. Getting yourself educated by attending classes, making contacts with experienced Beeks (especially local) whom you can watch and ask questions of and reading as much as you want is the right way to start things off. I'm going into my 4th year and am continually learning. Starting to make some of my own equipment and going to try raising my own queens from grafts this year.

    It's a very dynamic hobby as you don't know what you're find and be challenged with from day to day. Hive extractions like what you're dealing with are a whole lot of fun. It's a learning experience you'll never forget. Keep it up.
